Why I think I’m good at my job:
Honesty first and foremost! I have a very strong knowledge of machining and tooling enabling me to give good advice on where XYZ would be the best fit and why with a good frame of reference. When I was a production project engineer, I was responsible for acquiring machine tools and just think what would I have wanted or needed. I also believe in being myself at all times.
